Statement of Purpose “If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?” – Albert Einstein.
My research interests lie in the fields of machine learning and big data analytics. Some undergraduate students may find realizing their research interests a lot less challenging than I did. For me it was an unrelenting quest that involved working with researchers across a wide range of projects. My journey as an undergraduate has been inspired to a great extent by the aforementioned quote from Albert Einstein. As a freshman undergraduate, I didn’t even have a remote idea about the field of research that I should pursue. Though, I was constantly aware of my burgeoning urge to innovate and an instancy to channel that urge into my

After securing a rank within the top 0.6% among 0.48 million candidates competing in the joint entrance examination for admission into the IITs , I chose mathematics and computing as my branch of study at Indian Institute of Technology (BHU), Varanasi. Its curriculum offers a unique blend of mathematics and computer science courses. Though the course structure has a little more rigor than computer science, but owing to a deep interest in mathematics, I found it befitting my range of interests.
During my freshman year, I was keenly probing for a research opportunity related to mathematics and computer science. The opportunity presented itself in the form of a selection letter from Indian Academy of Sciences to undertake a research project at Indian Statistical Institute, under the guidance of Dr. B.N. Mandal. He is a renowned researcher in the field of Integral equations. At the end of my internship, I received a letter of appreciation from the mentor that encouraged me greatly. Since then, I maintained a deep interest in mathematics but eagerness to explore other areas constantly pushed me to break free of my intellectual bounds. During the sophomore year, I explored recent research works
